1. In order to begin the Meaningful Use testing and submission process, you must begin by registering your intent to initiate ongoing submission with MIIS
Log into the ContactMIIS Resource Center at https://www.contactmiis.info/crcMU.asp (Note: If you do not have a login for the ContactMIIS Resource Center, please contact your site’s Access Administrator to receive assistance in accessing the ContactMIIS Resource Center.)
Select the Meaningful Use tab.
Click the Intent Registration link.
Complete the Intent Registration form and submit it to the MIIS.
Once MIIS has received your materials and are ready to move forward, they will be in contact with you. (Note: You will be placed in a queue for processing in this step)
If you need any further assistance with registering or receiving your credentials, please reach out to the MIIS Help Desk directly:
Note: if you are a Medicare clinician participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), additional guidance for new registrations has not yet been provided. If you have already completed MIIS registration previously, your active engagement will continue. If you are a new registrant, please contact MIIS directly for information.
2. Upon receipt of the credentials, complete the registration for electronic submission of immunization in Practice Fusion.
Ensure that the following information has been accurately entered into the EHR in the applicable areas: Provider name, Primary facility address, and NPI. Note: For instructions on editing your EHR Settings, click here.
Navigate to Settings --> Vaccines and immunizations --> Immunization registry.
Under Step 2: Connect, select Connect an EHR facility to your state registry.
Select the facility name you are registering.
Select Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS) from the Receiving Registry drop-down list.
Enter your credentials. Select the “i” icon for additional information about each credential. If you do not know your Production/Testing PIN, please contact the MIIS Help Desk directly.
Click Register to begin the testing and validation process.
3. Testing and validation process
Practice Fusion will start sending test immunization files to MIIS along with the following information from your EHR account: provider name, primary facility address, NPI, and information you entered on the Immunization registry settings page.
If information was entered incorrectly on the Settings page or if there was any error with the file, you should be notified by Practice Fusion or MIIS with an explanation of the issue.
If you need to update the information entered in the Immunization registry settings page, delete the existing electronic transmission registration. Once you've corrected the information, resubmit the registration to re-start the testing and validation process with the updated information.
4. Activate your immunization integration in the Immunization registry settings page
Practice Fusion will notify you via email when you can proceed to submit production (real patient data). You might also be notified by MIIS directly.
Only once you have been notified that you can submit production data, navigate to the Immunization registry settings page and activate your integration.
5. Submit immunization records directly to MIIS
Once activated, you will be able to electronically submit immunization files to your registry for each patient.
Go to the Immunizations section of the chart and select Transmit all. Alternatively, click the Actions button and select Transmit to state registry.
Be sure to transmit the immunization file to the state registry for each patient whose immunization record you update.
